Term 1

To learn the continents and oceans as part of Geography, we looked at where they all were on Google Earth and then tested our memories with a game! In groups of 3 or 4, we had to collect a label for a continent or ocean and then place it in the correct place on a world map, before getting another one.    

As part of our Science topic on Forces and Magnets, we did an experiment to find out which surface causes the most friction. To find out we rolled a car down a ramp onto the different surfaces and measured how far it went. The further it went, the less friction the surface causes.  

In Art we have been learning about landscape painting, including perspective and famous French artists such as Monet. As part of our work on creating a landscape painting of the French countryside, we have been experimenting with different ways of applying the paint and the effects that it can produce, for example using scrunched up paper towel, glue spreaders and cotton buds. It was a lot of fun, and a little bit messy!

We have been enjoying exploring and getting to know the books in our book corner and getting comfy reading and sharing them in the classroom. We have lots of classic authors such as Roald Dahl, Enid Blyton and Francesca Simon, as well as hundreds of other fiction and non-fiction books.
